Alabama's starting oline is enormous
Still some shuffling going on, but the o line is shaping up to be truly massive, and very talented.

LT Alex Leatherwood 6'6" 310
LG Evan Neal 6'7 360
C Emil Ekiyor 6'3" 327
RG Matt Womack 6'7" 325
RT Jedrick Wills 6'5" 320

Leatherwood and Neal were 5 star recruits, Wills was right there on the 5 star cusp, and Ekiyor was a highly recruited 4 star that we stole from Michigan if I remember. Womack is our normal 3 star lunch pail guy who had a ton of offers and out works more gifted players. Don't know if he would have a spot if Deonte Brown wasnt suspended the first 4 games, but he's played a hell of a lot of football and been a starter for us in the past at multiple positions. We are getting past the undersized OL that Cristobal seemed to like to recruit, got some road graders out there now. Should be a big strength for us, especially since we have a favorable early schedule to gel

Huge doesn't always mean good. And I'm not as impressed with star ratings on offensive lineman. Look at Clemson for instance. Their line was littered with 3 star upperclassmen. Look at Cushenberry at LSU who's a 3 star. Thank God that stud linebacker decided to flip to Texas or we wouldn't have offered Cush at the last minute.

Arkansas' starting line in 2015 was allegedly bigger and heavier than any starting OL in all of football at any level.

8-5 and couldn't buy a point against Toledo. That line also got the game winning chip shot field goal blocked by Mississippi State.

Saban has had nothing but praise for them since the start of camp, which is rare for him. This just might be Alabama's best offensive line since 2012.

He doesn't know. He accidentally typed an "n" where a "t" should be. tarddogg81 is who he really is. It is an honest alabama inbred mistake.

Ours ain’t small:

LT - Andrew Thomas 6’5” 320 4 Star (#45 overall player)

LG - Ben Cleveland 6’6” 335 4 star (#90 overall player)

C - Trey Hill 6’4” 330 4 Star (#62 overall player)

RG - Solomon Kindley 6’4” 335 3 Star

RT - Isaiah Wilson 6’ 7” 340 5 Star (#16 overall player)

Backups include
Cade Mays (5 Star)
Jamaree Sayler ( 5 Star)
Warren Erickson (4 Star)
Clay Webb (5 Star)
Xavier Truss (4 Star)
Justin Schaffer (3 Star)

Sorry but as a UGA fan I’m not used to this type of OL talent. Richt viewed OL as an afterthought

re: Alabama's starting oline is enormous
Richt recruited almost all 3* guard type players then when our QBs would go up against an elite pass rushing team our QB would get crushed repeatedly. Hard to believe the talent we have now - we have 3-4 guys on this OLine that would be a once every 5 year recruit for Richt.
